RHP, started for the Rangers against the Yankees and allowed one run on four hits in three innings while striking out two. He has a high leg kick to his delivery with a deep arm action and high slot. His curveball has the makings of being an above average pitch with sharpness, power and 11/5 shape at 76-79. His changeup was 78-79.

Lewis has a ton of upside with a quick arm and a projectable 6-foot-6, 195-pound, athletic frame. The LSU commits fastball sat 89-91, working from a high slot with tilted shoulders, creating steep angle and arm side depth. Curveball was 75-78 with 12/6 shape and shows signs of becoming a plus pitch in the SEC. Although his command was scattered in the second inning, he was missing by much. Threw a couple of changeups at 75 mph.

Jimmy Lewis, RHP/1B, Lake Travis HS, 2019
Lewis has tremendous upside with his 6-foot-6, 190-pound, long, projectable, athletic frame. He works from a high-¾ slot with a loose, quick, athletic arm stroke. He threw his fastball for strikes and sat mostly 87-89 mph with late, arm-side run and action, bumping 90 mph twice, and dropping only once to 86 mph. His fastball jumps out of his hand with ease. His curveball has 10-4 shape and depth, coming in at 72-74 mph. Has good feel for a changeup that he throws with fastball arm speed at 75-76 mph. A two-way player and right-handed hitter, Lewis has good leverage with his long-limbed frame. He has a balanced, neutral setup, simple load back with rhythm as his hands trigger back and down. Short stride, quick hips with bat speed (88 mph) and a short path with strength at contact. Creates lift and carry as the barrel is in the zone and on plane. Hard single during the game to left field. At first base, Lewis has average footwork with rhythm through the ball. Soft hands and an easy transfer as he transitions into a strong throwing motion across the diamond at 89 mph. Has a good feel for his footwork around the bag. With Lewis' projectable frame, quick arm, pedigree, and present arm strength, it is easy to dream that his velocity will continue to climb and his future is most likely on the mound at a Division I program.
